Apple Just Released iOS 11.4 With Support for AirPlay 2 & iCloud Messages

After a long long wait we finally have AirPlay 2. This is a feature many people including myself have been waiting for. AirPlay 2 allows you to stream to multiple speaker locations and syncs your music from Control Center. Right now, AirPlay 2-compatible devices include the Apple TV and the HomePod, but in the future, AirPlay 2 will be available on third-party speakers from manufacturers like Bang & Olufsen, Bluesound, Bose, Bowers & Wilkins, Denon, Libratone, Marantz, Marshall, Naim, Pioneer and Sonos.

In order to get AirPlay 2 support you will have to upgrade to the latest iOS 11.4 which was just released today.

Along with AirPlay 2 support comes iCloud Messages. This allows you to store your iMessages in the cloud instead of each individual device.

Some other minor changes in iOS 11.4 include security fixes as well as USB Restricted Mode. This mode gives you a week long expiration date on access to the lighting port if your phone has not been unlocked. This is to limit law enforcement and other password cracking tools.

iOS 11.4 is available now via over the air update. Below are the direct download links and as always you can find all the old iOS firmware files located here: http://leimobile.com/firmware-downloads/
